League summary:

Eredivisie 2014/2015 (ongoing): 5 matches/0 goals (Vitesse Arnhem)



Kevin Diks joined Vitesse’s youth setup in 2005, aged nine, after playing for VIOS Vaassen and hometown’s AGOVV Apeldoorn. Few people know this, but Vitesse has a very good football academy, of which in the last few years came out a number of very good players such as Stijn Schaars, Marco van Ginkel, Piet Velthuizen and Alexander Büttner. In the 2014 summer manager Peter Bosz called Kevin to the main squad for the pre-season and gave him a chance to play in a 1–3 defeat against Chelsea. On 24 August 2014, after proffiting from first-choice Wallace’s injury, he made his first-team – and Eredivisie – debut, starting in a 1–2 away loss against PEC Zwolle.



“I think Kevin has done excellent. Of course you’re nervous, but I think he has held up well. It’s also a great compliment to our academy that they delivered us this player.”
